Is my woofer dead?
So today I had my Home Theater set-up…well, set up and I was playing Demon's Souls, I had my woofer volume set to -6(the minimum on my av samsung ht-dm150) since I don't like the woofer too boomy, loud etc. however I never wanted to have no bass at all, I went to take a wiss quickly and when I came back everything sounded like a tin can, the ambient air sounds were really atmospheric because of the woofer, and the punches sounded really good but suddenly it was missing that thump, and that woosh(?
I then set the volume from my woofer to +6 and it was back but now it sounded all weird, distorted if you will, and it would only be present on stuff such as when an attack landed, I tried music and it seemed to only play the REEAAALLY low frequency bits, such as the drums on Floor by P-Model leaving the rest sounding like a bad phone speaker
Then I unplugged it for 10 minutes and when i tried it again, this time playing Symphony of the Night I managed to catch the woofer in it's old glory, it made everything rumble because it was at +6, but suddenly it sounded like a hiss for a few seconds then went back to the let's call it bad-mode. I turned the Amp off and on again and now it seems to be working in a mix of bad-mode and former glory, it still kinda sounds like a tin can but I can definitely hear it reaching for the more high frequency low frequencies(?
What's there to do? I refuse to believe it's the woofer, a google search made me believe maybe a fuse died and the woofer died as well, but it does work…just, less powerful
The amp could be the culprit, though I wish it's not cuz I'm short on cash(THOUGH I DO NEED TO UPGRADE). Any help or suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
P.S: yes it's all properly hooked, it's been for years, and I did double-check
